Day 5 (the name refers to the Biblical day when fish was created) is all about an authentic sushi experience. In Japan sushi is not just a meal – it is treated as an art and part of the culture. Understanding and appreciating that, owners Zack and Raizy Levine opened their Brooklyn restaurant in February 2013 with a goal to recreate this level of sushi for the kosher market. Constantly pursuing perfection is part of their philosophy of running the restaurant, as is their belief in delivering full value. The Levines understand that cool names and stylish décor is not enough to win the real sushi connoisseurs - the authentic experience is what counts and makes a sushi place truly upscale.Theirdécor in red and espresso colors produces a wonderful ambiance of a boutique restaurant, complete with wooden furniture and exposed brick wall.
To ensure that Day 5 will take the kosher sushi dining to the next level, the owners brought on board Chef Nima, whose creative vision and training in the most respected sushi restaurants in the US is one of the keys to the restaurant’s success. In addition to delicious variety of sushi rolls, you will find many innovative appetizers, salads and entrees on the menu. One of the much raved about specialties is the Sweetheart appetizer – layers of spicy tuna, tempura flakes and guacamole on a bed of special rice, laid out in a heart shape. Another mouthwatering dish is their Tuna Pizza – thinly sliced tuna on thin crispy dough with vegetables and special sauces, topped with radish sprout and drizzled with truffle oil. If you are up for a fish entrée, Miso Marinated Black Cod is highly recommended.
What further makes Day 5 unusual is the fact that they are dairy, and thus can offer more unique options for a sushi restaurant. For example, their signature fries are topped with Parmesan, and their dessert menu includes such dairy favorites as Fried Oreos with ice cream and a variety of cheesecakes. Made on premises by their own pastry chef, the dessert menu varies from day to day, and may include such finger-licking items as Bourbon Pecan Pie, Key Lime Pie, Chocolate Mousse, and more. Be ready to be surprised! Customers are also appreciative of the restaurant’s catering, takeout and delivery service, as Day 5 Sushi make sure nothing “gets lost in translation”. If you tried Day 5 Sushi the chances are you are now a loyal customer, and if you haven’t, perhaps it’s a high time to do so.
